Students Showcase 3-D Printing Projects at Statehouse

Students from across the state joined Governor Hogan last week at Digital Learning Day to showcase 3-D printing projects.

The Carroll County Times reports:

Gov. Larry Hogan will join students from throughout Maryland on Thursday to see the results of a statewide 3-D printing project, according to a news release from Maryland State Department of Education.

Students in Maryland’s 24 public school systems built pieces of a “large-scale topographical map of the state,” according to the release, using 3-D printers. Select students will gather on Thursday in the State House on Digital Learning Day to put together the map for the very first time.

Digital Learning Day, which was launched in 2012, provides “a showcase for educators to spotlight the uses of educational technology both in the classroom and in out-of-school programs,” according to the release. “Digital Learning Day promotes effective use of modern tools to improve the learning experiences in K-12 schools.”
